For added warmth, look for textures like brushed cotton

Our desire to hibernate in style has never been more pertinent. This winter, we’re treating ourselves to sheets that promise to keep us toasty warm while elevating our bedroom in the style stakes.

If your bed’s a veritable sanctuary, now’s the time to invest in a winter duvet set that will see you through the colder months. Look for extra snuggly textures such as brushed cotton and fleece. 

These are designed specifically for winter and promise to keep you wonderfully warm. 

They’re also super easy to maintain and can often go straight from the tumble dryer to the bed, skipping the ironing board ­– how’s that for relaxed luxury?

If breathability is a concern, however, consider all natural materials such as organic and Egyptian cotton. These can be just as cosy as their synthetic counterparts and they’re naturally hypoallergenic too.

We put a range of bedding to the test, as diverse in their price tags as they were in their design, all the while looking for quality of craftsmanship, easy laundering, and that all-important winter warmth.

You can trust our independent reviews. We may earn commission from some of the retailers, but we never allow this to influence selections, which are formed from real-world and expert advice. This revenue helps us to fund journalism across The Independent.

Tielle Love Luxury snuggle sleeper ready for bed bundle


We do love a bedding bundle and this is one of the most comprehensive on offer. From the brand that kits out top hotels – as well as our humble bedrooms – the set matches Savoy feather and down pillows and duvets which are used in lots of luxury hotels (choose the 10.5 tog for winter warmth), with crisp white 400 thread count bedding: duvet cover, fitted sheet, Oxford pillowcases and even a pair of cotton zipped pillow protectors. Perhaps a bedding set for those who seriously value their sleep, it’s far from cheap but it is the ultimate in luxury hibernation. We’re calling it self-care.

Single bedding start from £290.

The verdict: Winter bedding sets

Morris & Co’s William Morris Wilhelmina bedding set proved a beautiful addition to our bedroom. It offered a timeless country cottage look, which perfectly complimented our vintage furniture pieces. Not the cheapest but worth the investment, we loved this top quality winter floral set. We were also won over by Beddable’s simple and stylish navy duvet set for its contemporary look and luxurious feel.
